Brass 230 Chemical Composition

230 Brass is composed mainly of copper and zinc, which gives it excellent chemical resistance. It won’t corrode or rust easily when exposed to moisture or harsh chemicals like acids or bases. This makes it perfect for use in areas where corrosion could be problematic, such as marine environments or near corrosive liquids or gases.

Brass 230 Applications

Brass UNS C23000 has many different applications in the manufacturing industry. It can manufacture components for cars and ships, aerospace parts and medical devices. It’s also used to make jewellery and other decorative items. Because of its versatility, it’s one of the most popular alloys used in modern manufacturing.

230 Brass Corrosion Resistance

One of the biggest benefits of brass 230 is its impressive corrosion resistance compared to other metals like steel or aluminium. This makes it ideal for use in areas with high humidity or salty air levels and areas prone to frequent exposure to water or other corrosive elements like oil or gasoline fumes.

Brass UNS C23000 Heat Treatment

Another benefit of  brass 230 is that it can be heat-treated for increased strength or improved machinability. Heat treatment involves heating the alloy to certain temperatures before allowing it to cool down slowly under controlled conditions; this process changes the internal structure of the metal so that its mechanical properties can be tailored according to specific requirements while still maintaining its corrosion resistance qualities intact.


Brass 230 is an excellent metal alloy with many beneficial properties that make it ideal for various industrial applications across multiple industries, such as automotive, marine engineering, and medical device manufacturing. Its corrosion resistance qualities, high strength, and malleability make it perfect for creating complex components with relative ease while ensuring longevity against wear and tear over time due to its impressive heat treatment capabilities, too!
